You guys ask questions about deep staging that you want clarified?
I will try to answer and also give reasons why I deep stage.

Re: Deep Thoughts On Deep Staging!

The only reason I can think of for Deep Staging is to help with Reaction Time.

Knowledge does not equal Understanding, and the Truth is the Truth, no matter what you think of it...........

Re: Deep Thoughts On Deep Staging!

Remember there are no bad ?'s, So ask away folks!
Steve B's reason is the most common one for Deep Staging, (DS).

To get a better reaction time by shortening the rollout or distance needed to activate the timers. This quickens your reaction times. You may have a lazy car that leaves slower than your others so you can deep stage to a point that equals your others cars reaction times. You might have a diecast or very heavy slow car, DS can relieve some of your worries at the line on reaction time. Most likely it is easier to adjust your car and not your brain in a racing situations. I have seen many bad lights in my own lane from not paying enough attention to which car and what power I was running. The main rule for DS in Bracket Racing is to run your time trials this way. If you do not, you may be lost on your dial-in first round. My results are usually .010 to .025 loss of ET while DS’ing, depending on the car. Some of you will say WOW that’s a bunch! You are right it is in heads up racing, but gaining .050 on the light can erase the ET loss in a hurry but that is mainly in class racing which will be explored later.
